Cate Dyer bought baby parts

Remember the Center for Medical Progress, CMP? They were the folks who did some undercover video work and caught Planned Parenthood representatives negotiating prices for selling intact baby parts. For uncovering those illegalities, they got taken to court. The preliminary hearings are finally moving along, and there’s been a revelation in the witness testimony.

San Francisco has declared the NRA a “terrorist organization”. What does that make members of the NRA? And what other groups probably should be called that given San Fran’s standards. Well, now the NRA is fighting back.

Episode 265: There Is No “Gay Gene”

Born this way? No.

A large study (over 470,000 participants) asked about sexual preferences and activity. It also looked at genetic markers. What they found was that your genes have extremely little to do with your preferences or action.

Basically it’s nurture over nature. There is no “gay gene”. “Born This Way” is a catch-phrase, a chant, not a scientific statement.

This episode has my thoughts on what this means; how we’ve been lied to, and how it exposes current pressures from the LGBTQ crew on society.

Does Beto value human life?

Yet another large study reveals more issues of mental health among transgendered people. The researchers expect more but the magnitude shocked them. It should shock all of us. But which came first?

Beto O’Roarke was asked about the value of human life. Should be an easy question, but when it’s asked about a baby one day before he or she is born, things get dicey.

Was Michael Brown murdered?

I’ve got, not just a quote, but a bunch of quotes from a public figures on the subject of immigration. Read them, and you might think this is some xenophobe. Think again.

Five years ago, white police officer Darren Wilson shot black teen Michael Brown. Wilson was cleared of all charges, but some Democratic presidential candidates remembered the anniversary of that shooting by smearing the cop. Wonderful.

Episode 262: What Is Separating the Two Sides?

The political divide. What separates us?

Do you really know what the other side thinks? A recent survey suggests that neither side does.

But as with many other observations that “both sides do it”, there is an imbalance. It’s not equal.

Who’s going to cut spending?

A listener takes me to task over America’s “energy independence”. OK, so the picture isn’t quite as rosy as I made it sound. Thanks, Mark!

Are both the Democrats and Republicans to blame for the latest bloated budget agreement? Yes. But can they be blamed the same? No. And which side has more representatives pushing for fiscal responsibility? It’s not even close.

Little Sisters of the Poor

One listener, Russ Rooney, called in to the Voicemail Feedback Hotline with two topic suggestions. That’s what I talk about this time out.

He asks a question about cities that have declared themselves sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, yet have a huge homelessness problem. How can cities bring in more people when they are already failing their current residents?

The Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of nuns ministering the elderly poor, got a unanimous Supreme Court decision in their favor to have nothing to do with abortion coverage for their employees. But that’s apparently not good enough for 13 states and DC from suing the nuns separately.

Russ wrote a letter to the editor of 2 of his local papers to get this lawsuit some coverage because they are totally ignoring it, even though his state is joining in this lawsuit. Where’s the journalistic integrity? See below the show transcript for his letter.

The Greeks choose conservatism (for now)

There is so much good news on the Economic front, but you might not be hearing it. More people are getting employed, and more people are looking for jobs as well.

An election in Greece suggests that the people there are tired of the unfulfilled promises of socialism. There is hope there, and yet over here Democrats are falling all over themselves to try to make very similar promises to the Greek socialists.

And yes, the stopped clock was right at one point. When Democratic Presidential hopeful Andrew Yang suggested a cash giveaway, Joy Behar actually asked an intelligent question of him. His answer was, shall we say, quite revealing.

Anti-fascists?

The state of California is asking that pastors, educators, legislators, and just about everyone else, to affirm homosexuality and transgenderism. It’s asking politely now, but is this just the start? And how, in the name of the First Amendment, is this even a thing anyway?

Antifa, that wonderful organization that opposes fascism (hey, it’s in the name, right), uses fascist tactics to physically beat up journalists covering them. But the media want to give them a pass. Hey, nobody’s perfect, right Don Lemon?

OPEC looks like it will try to drive up the price of oil, but we may not feel it quite as much here in America. I’ll tell you why. (Thank you, Sarah Palin!)

Did these doomsday predictions come true?

Park rangers at Glacier National Park had put up signs to let visitors know that the glaciers there would be “Gone by 2020”. But guess what they’re doing with those signs now?

It’s been a year since the net neutrality rules, created by the Obama administration, were removed by Trump’s FCC. Did the doomsday predictions of what would happen come true?

And does banning plastic bags like California (and an al-Qaeda subsidiary…really) really do anything for the environment? How do we get a better bang for the buck?
